Topics covered in Sociology A-Level include; causes of public violence, why children from wealthier backgrounds outperform those from poorer backgrounds in the education system, why there are so few women in British prisons, and in general, why women commit less crime than men do.
Many of our students go on to study sociology or criminology at some of the UK’s top universities including Durham, York, Lancaster and Leeds. Sociology will open a range of avenues in numerous employment areas. Many students go onto legal professions, the civil service, local government, teaching, the police, social work and social research, to name a few.
